Must See Painting Shows: February by New American Paintings
February 8, 2013, 8:30 am
Filed under: Art World, Must-Sees | Tags: , , , ,

It is, once again, a very strong month for New American Paintings’ alumni with close to thirty solo exhibitions on view around the country. Some of these artists are now well established, such as Amy Cutler, others are early in their careers, such as Ellen Lesperance, who is currently exhibiting her intricate works on paper and objects at Ambach & Rice in Los Angeles.

I have written a lot about the dominance of abstraction over the past few years. This month, first-rate representational painting, and in particular figurative painting, can been seen throughout the country. What is most interesting to me is that a growing number of emerging artists seem to be unabashedly embracing aspects of art history that pre-date the 20th-Century.

In New York, be sure to catch Vera Iliatova’s soon-to-open show at Monya Rowe Gallery and Benjamin Senior’s stunning exhibition at James Fuentes (reference points for Senior include Pierro dell Francesca and Poussin). Both artists are well versed with art history, and both have serious technical chops. In Chicago, Ann Toebbe opens a show at EBERSMOORE next week in which the figure adds a new level of complexity to her already charged interiors. In Los Angeles, be sure to catch the soon-to-close exhibition by NAP alum Travis Collinson at Maloney Fine Art, and Henry Taylor, who will open later this month at Blum & Poe.

For those interested in non-objective work, there is plenty on view. Aaron Bobrow will open at Andrea Rosen Gallery this month. Also, in Chelsea, the rarely seen work of Italian painter Giorgio Griffa offers a clinic in how less can be more at Casey Kaplan. One of the curators of the 2014 Whitney Biennial, artist Michelle Grabner, has new work at Shane Campbell Gallery in Chicago. In San Francisco, Noam Rappaport, whose investigations into the line between painting and sculpture have been much talked about, opens at Ratio 3. Enjoy the list. - Steven Zevitas, Publisher
